Splinter Cell Conviction has been taken “back to the drawing board” by Ubisoft Montreal.

That’s according to a report in the latest UK issue of Xbox World 360. Though Ubisoft isn’t saying anything, the mag says it’s heard that the surprising development decision has forced Splinter Cell back into the festive period of 2009 – or as late as Spring 2010.
